Soaking in an Epsom salt bath has many benefits. A cupful of Epsom salt in your bath can give relief from aches and pains and soothe away the stresses of a tiring day. Especially when it's been expertly blended with natures finest essential oils. Jones the Bones bath salts and Muscle and Joint Oil can help with fibromyalgia aches and pains, muscle and joint stiffness, sports injuries and just about everything else!
Bath salts can be really beneficial to your health. They aren't just something nice to add to your bath water, they can have all kinds of health benefits too.
Our bodies need magnesium and sulfate to function properly. Without magnesium in our bodies, we cannot create energy (and we all need that en we have kids to wrangle). Our muscles need magnesium to contract and relax and even our hormones depend on magnesium and sulphate to help control vital body functions.
Magnesium is a mineral compound that can be absorbed through the skin. Using Epsom salts and sea salt in the bath will increase your magnesium levels immediately.
Another benefit of a salt bath is the detox element. You can shift excess fluid that your body may have retained, just by spending 20 minutes soaking in the bath! And don't forget that lying in a bath of warm water will help to ease sore muscles.
Its great for period pains and the magnesium is reported to be good for those with chocolate cravings (or you could just buy some organic chocolate and give in to them!)
What if I don't have a bath?
You can still reap the benefits. Fill a basin or foot bath with some water and spend 15 minutes or so soaking your feet. You can add pure essential oils if you want to scent the water.
A foot soak will soften your feet. If you have pain in your feet or ankles then an Epsom salt foot soak can help to ease that. Many people swear by the magnesium sulphate in the salt bath to remove toxins and to help restless legs.
